Introduction
ACTi provides you a series of guides for your project from proposal stage to maintainese stage. They work as below [IP surveillance Prosposal Guide]: Making proposal to your customer [IP Surveillance Deployment Guide]: Fullfill your project from proposal to practical to your customer. [Tech Support and TroubleShooting Guide]: Find the root cause of your problem and solve it. This [IP Surveillance Proposal Guide] contains step by step procedure for you to fulfill your project. We start with “Select your architecture type” and then “Build up each building block” in the architecture you selected. To familiarize you with the analog imaging knowledge and the IT knowledge, we also provide you the “IP Surveillance 101” at the appendix. You can look through it to have a brief idea about IP Surveillance. In first part, “Select Architecture Type”, we will start to differentiate differentiate basic solution diagram for different applications. You can have the idea about what customer might want in his application and how it looks like. This Proposal guide will include solution proposals with channel 64 and below. For solution proposal will channel more than 64, please contact our sales representative for more information. In Second Part, “Diagram Customization”, it is not possible for the solution diagram to fit exactly what your customer need. Thus, we have to customize the diagram into your customer’s solution diagram, which is your proposal. We will not include everything in this guide. Please refer to 1. [IP Surveillance Proposal Guide] for how make a proposal to your customer. 2. [Tech Support and Troubleshooting guide] for how to define the problem, analyze the problem then solve the problem

Audio If you need to hear to sound from the camera site. The waterproof standard is called IP66. you have to buy a IP66 compliant housing when installed outdoor. IP zoom camera. There are two types of Day/Night function. For cameras not integrated into a housing (ex: Box camera). Day/Night function If your camera is installed at a outdoor.). Speed dome camera. you need cameras with audio function.hand. Item Outdoor / Indoor Day/Night function Audio Vandal Proof WDR function Zoom capacity Rotation Speed Spec Remark A. Below is a checklist for you to select each camera. B. it must have waterproof. For cameras integrated into a housing (ex: Dome camera . one is done via “Mechanical removable IR-Filter” and the other is done via “Digital processing only”. Outdoor / Indoor If you want to install a camera outdoor. you have to check if its housing complies to IP66 standard. Besure to select the camera with ‘Mechanical Removable IR-Filter” otherwise the image color will not be true during day time and the focus might shift when switching between day mode and night mode.

the more cover range and the more detailed images it can get. Shooting mainly indoor or mainly outdoor objects. WDR function If you want to install a camera at indoor shooting both indoor and outdoor objects. Please select by optical zoom only since digital zoom will decrease the image quality. For cameras not integrated into a housing (ex: Box camera). Buying a camera with WDR function. 2. it would be necessary to have vandalproof casing. To select sufficient zoom ratio. This problem can be solved by 1. Cameras With WDR function Cameras without WDR function might have darkened indoor images or over brightened outdoor images F. There are two types of zoom: Optical and digital. you might have a problem obtaining clear images of both indoor objects and outdoor objects at the same time. Zoom capacity (Zoom camera. you have to buy a vandal proof housing. Because how detailed the image should be depends on different 20 . Speed dome camera. we select by considering cover range first then how detailed the image should be.). E. you have to check if its housing has vandal proof function.If you want to install a camera at a place where it might be damaged. the more zoom capacity it has. For cameras integrated into a housing (ex: Dome camera . Speed dome only) For zoom camera and speed dome camera. IP zoom camera.

2-2-3. Select lens (for Box camera only) This section is for box camera only since dome camera. It’s good for you to try the camera first to see if the image quality meets your standard. G. mounting. Rotation Speed (Speed dome only) Rotation speed directly effect the how fast the speed dome can response to an event. Aperture and IR correct) Please fill in the Lens Key item Table first. speed dome camera comes with lens built-in. Select camera accessory There are several types accessory required for each camera installation including lens. 2-1. You can select according to the below diagram H. focal length. then select by below flow 21 . below is a simple reference of how to select by cover range. Auto/Manual Iris. Please see below for how to select each accessory. Lens selection are based 5 specs (C/CS mount.viewer. housing. Image Quality Image quality is another one thing important but you can’t find it in any datasheet or selection guide.

you have to make sure the lens you buy is compatible to your camera. A. Auto/Manul Iris There are two ways (adjusting the iris and adjusting the electric shutter speed) for camera to adjust the incoming lighting strength to get the best image quality without either getting too bright images or getting too dark images. Note: Most cameras are C and CS compliant at the same time. Adjusting the iris is always the better way because there might be some side effect 22 . otherwise the focus of the image will fail.Lens key item table Item For Normal camera or Day/Night camera Object distance 3~10M 10M and above Spec Remark Lens selection flow. C/CS Mount C/CS mount are different specs for lens to be mounted onto a camera. Thus. B. The mount standard of the camera and the lens should be the same .

Below is a reference for how the different focal length works when shooting at the same people at 10M away. The difference between auto iris and manual iris. Focal length Basically. it can make sure your camera performance through out a day. is that auto iris will adjust itself instantly according to the environment lighting status (controlled by the camera) while manual iris’s iris is fixed (normally people won’t change the camera setting all the time after installed) thus the camera has to use electric shutter to control the lighting strength. The bigger the f is. 23 .while changing the electric shutter speed. focus length directly effect the lens’ viewing angle and viewing distance and it is always marked as “f” in lens spec. we strongly recommend you to use auto-iris lens. If you have a lens supporting auto iris function. Thus. C. the bigger viewing distance will be and the smalled viewing angle will be. Vari-focal lens have a range of “f” which means it can be adjusted to any “f” within the range onsite.

How big the area you wish this camera to cover (angle of view)? 2. Please compare this spec with lenses with the same focal length only. The smaller the aperture is. please check the analog camera’s spec. Regardless the angle of view. the focus of the camera will shift when switching between day mode or night mode. IR correct (Day/Night camera only) If a camera has a Day/Night function which enables it to switch to B&E during night time. Select mount/housing This section tells you how to select the right mount or housing for different applications. you can’t have two factors satisfied at the same time. For analog cameras + video servers. we strong recommend you to use the IR correct lens with it. which you can adjust onsite to ensure the best performance. How big you with the object to be seen on the monitor? Sometimes. the more sensitive the lens is (because it allows more lights to pass through). Because without an IR correct lens. below is an selection based clear images to be seen from the monitor at a certain distance. 1.The selection of the focal length is based on two factors. usually a lens with higher focal length has bigger aperture. D. Thus. Aperture This spec is marked as “F” in lens spec. Aperture is subject to Focal length. 24 . E. we highly recommend you to buy Varfi-focal length. 2-2. Below is a mount/housing selection table of all our IP cameras. then you have to select one factor to be considered first.

) Whether to enable this function or not is subject to each case. Otherwise. Appropriate settings are required for both parts to ensure the camera performance. 2-2-6. That’s because sometimes you might get worse images after you turn the BLC on. (ex: shooting from indoor to outdoor. C.4-5. the lighting difference between indoor objects and outdoor objects is huge. You can refer to camera’s hardware manual for more information about switching the settings. only. 28 . no need for dome camera. DC level Switch this level to micro adjust the video overall brightness. NOTE: You have to login the IP camera to view the image first. and adjust according to video displayed. just adjust it when there’s a brightness issue. Auto Iris / Electric shutter (Box camera only) Be sure to switch to Auto Iris when using a box camera with an auto iris lens. This problem happens often when at a scene containing objects with high lighting difference. speed dome. A. This section is for box camera (when connected to a RS-485 P/T bracket) and video server(when connected to a speed dome or a box camera with a P/T bracket). Below are some key items to configure and how to configure. the image will be completedly dark. You have to adjust on-site and decide by on-site performance. analog imaging configuration and the web-configurator setting. B. Analog imaging configuration The configuration of the analog imaging are done by either switching the DIP-Switch at the camera side panel or by entering the camera’s OSD menu and setup. Camera configuration The camera configuration includes two parts. There’s no rule to adjust this setting. 5-1. BLC (Backlight Compensation) Backlight compensation is to solve the backlighting problem. Serial Connection E.

AWB (Auto White Balance) ATW (Auto Trace White Balance) PWB (Push White Balance) Manually Adjust (Manually set Red and Blue parameters) There’s no need to change the setting if the color rendering is bad. But it has relatively strong functionality against backlighting problem. You can try to turn it on when you have such kind of problem. Example: In some Japan area. There are 4 types of white balance setting and each camera might not have them all. F. Only in such kind of cases. Flickerless (Mostly for Japan only) For special area where the TV standard frequency is different then the AC power frequency.D. you will need to turn the Flickerless on. PTZ setting (for Zoom camera and speed dome only) Zoom camera and PTZ camera can be remote controlled by 29 . G. WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) Wide Dynamic Range works the same as BLC. please go through the setting below. Please see below for how each setting means and how to adjust. White Balance (Color rendering) White balance settings directly effect whether the color rendering is true or not.

Please refer to the description below for each setting. -Bit rate: This seting is to select the size of the streaming transferred by this device. storage size and the image quality (together 37 .

Frame integration . 38 . the better resolution it can provide. then we adjust the resolution and the frame rate for the video quality. But if you might eed to lower the frame rate if your bit rate is not enough for 30fps. Normally. The bigger the image is. we always set our bit rate according to the bandwidth and the storage size first.with resolution and frame rate). -Resolution: This is to select how big your image is.This setting is for the interlacing problem which happens when shooting an high speed moving object. Thus. we would recommend you to use 30fps because it won’t miss a thing. Below is a picture indicating the interlacing problem. NTSC Resolution D1 (720x480) CIF (360x240) QCIF (180x120) PAL Resolution D1 (720x576) CIF (360x288) QCIF (180x144) -Frame rate: This setting directly effect how many frame rates you can get per second. E-3.

Interlacing problem We strongly recommend you to use the “Deinterlace-Blending” if your are not sure what to use. If you are shooting a place where images are all moving very fast, you confront servious interlancing problem, then you can try to change it into “Deinterlace Motion”. NOTE: Deinterlace-blending deliver better images of static items while deinterlace-motion sacrifice some resolution to compensate for the motion. E-4. Serial port baud rate -This setting is important during the PTZ setting. Please refer to the table below for how to set it. Application Video Server + PTZ camera IP camera IP dome camera IP speed dome How to set Serial baud baud rate: This baud rate should be the same with the PTZ camera’s baud rate rate setting No use No use This baud rate should be the same with the IP speed dome camera’s 39

hardware baud rate rate setting. IP zoom camera This baud rate should be the same with the IP zoom camera’s hardware baud rate rate setting.

E-5. Network port setting -This section lets you set the network port for the network connection. This setting is important otherwise the system will fail (no images, PTZ don’t work or..). Please refer to support packge TS-00009 for how to set up http://www.acti.com/support/support_package.asp F. Video Adjust PTZ camera always move from one prest to another preset. There’s no need to adjust this parameter unless you have these problems PAL NTSC Hue 50 Hue 50 Brightness 55 Brightness 55 Saturation 85 Saturation 85 Contrast 55 Contrast 55 G. Date Setting This sections lets you know how to the set the time of the IP camera. Since the IP camera embeds the timecode within the streaming, it is important to set the time of the IP camera right. We recommend you to use SNTP/NTP because it can make sure all the IP camera are synchronized to the same time. Please refer to support packge TS-00006 for how to set up http://www.acti.com/support/support_package.asp The synchronize time means the time interval for the IP camera to sync time with the SNTP/NTP server, we recommend you to set as 5mins in normal conditions. If you are not sure about the SNTP / NTP, please select “Set Manually” and manually input the time.

For cameras integrated into a housing (ex: Dome camera .If you want to install a camera at a place where it might be damaged. Please select by optical zoom only since digital zoom will decrease the image quality. you might have a problem obtaining clear images of both indoor objects and outdoor objects at the same time. For cameras not integrated into a housing (ex: Box camera). it would be necessary to have vandalproof casing. M. you have to check if its housing has vandal proof function. IP zoom camera. Buying a camera with WDR function. This problem can be solved by 1. the more zoom capacity it has. Because how detailed the image should be depends on different 84 . the more cover range and the more detailed images it can get. you have to buy a vandal proof housing. WDR function If you want to install a camera at indoor shooting both indoor and outdoor objects. 2. we select by considering cover range first then how detailed the image should be. Speed dome only) For zoom camera and speed dome camera. To select sufficient zoom ratio. Cameras With WDR function Cameras without WDR function might have darkened indoor images or over brightened outdoor images N. Speed dome camera. Shooting mainly indoor or mainly outdoor objects.).

Adjusting the iris is always the better way because there might be some side effect 86 . Note: Most cameras are C and CS compliant at the same time. otherwise the focus of the image will fail. Thus. Auto/Manul Iris There are two ways (adjusting the iris and adjusting the electric shutter speed) for camera to adjust the incoming lighting strength to get the best image quality without either getting too bright images or getting too dark images. G. you have to make sure the lens you buy is compatible to your camera. H. The mount standard of the camera and the lens should be the same . C/CS Mount C/CS mount are different specs for lens to be mounted onto a camera.

while changing the electric shutter speed. 87 . The bigger the f is. the bigger viewing distance will be and the smalled viewing angle will be. Focal length Basically. focus length directly effect the lens’ viewing angle and viewing distance and it is always marked as “f” in lens spec. The difference between auto iris and manual iris. If you have a lens supporting auto iris function. Below is a reference for how the different focal length works when shooting at the same people at 10M away. is that auto iris will adjust itself instantly according to the environment lighting status (controlled by the camera) while manual iris’s iris is fixed (normally people won’t change the camera setting all the time after installed) thus the camera has to use electric shutter to control the lighting strength. we strongly recommend you to use auto-iris lens. Thus. Vari-focal lens have a range of “f” which means it can be adjusted to any “f” within the range onsite. it can make sure your camera performance through out a day. I.

Because without an IR correct lens. Regardless the angle of view. 88 . IR correct (Day/Night camera only) If a camera has a Day/Night function which enables it to switch to B&E during night time. we strong recommend you to use the IR correct lens with it. The smaller the aperture is. you can’t have two factors satisfied at the same time. Select mount/housing This section tells you how to select the right mount or housing for different applications. For analog cameras + video servers. then you have to select one factor to be considered first. Thus. below is an selection based clear images to be seen from the monitor at a certain distance. 1. Aperture This spec is marked as “F” in lens spec. the more sensitive the lens is (because it allows more lights to pass through).The selection of the focal length is based on two factors. the focus of the camera will shift when switching between day mode or night mode. Below is a mount/housing selection table of all our IP cameras. Please compare this spec with lenses with the same focal length only. which you can adjust onsite to ensure the best performance. Aperture is subject to Focal length. How big you with the object to be seen on the monitor? Sometimes. 2-2. usually a lens with higher focal length has bigger aperture. K. please check the analog camera’s spec. How big the area you wish this camera to cover (angle of view)? 2. J. we highly recommend you to buy Varfi-focal length.

The video playback of a DVR is more advanced than VCR.. . The images could be live preview or recorded images.

the cabling cost is significantly small. sometimes. There’s one special wireless (not the wireless we are talking about everyday) for analog system. The length of cables 3. Transmission based on IP-based network have advantages over analog cabling including 1. With wireless connection. you can’t view a camera cross county or cross country Ex: view a camera in USA from China. Also. the power and the network signal can be transferred via one network cable. Which 8 . PoE connection: When using PoE connection. Use an analog camera + video server 2. the network cross-nation is pre-built. The length of cables: In IP surveillance system. 4. because each video input requires a video cable from camera to the control room. The number of cables: In IP Surveillance system.PICTURE: Video generation block: There’s are two ways to generate the video. but this special wireless has relative small transmission distance (less than 10M according to practical using) and the image quality is bad even the wireless distance is small. PoE connection 1. the network infrastructure is pre-built in the building. the camera can be installed at places where cabling is difficult or very costy. the video is digitalized and compressed. But in analog surveillance system. The number of cables 2. IP surveillance system greatly enhance the system performance. all the data is digitalized and can be transferred via wireless network and delivers the same image quality. you just need to connect the IP camera to the nearest network switch instead of adding a new cable all the way from the control room to the camera. when adding a new camera. 4. multiple video input can share one network cable unlike the analog system cabling where each video input requires one coaxial cable. 3. Both reasons save a lot cost. The location of the camera. The locations of the cameras: In IP surveillance system. Data transmission block: All the data from video server/IP camera to the PC servers is transferred via IP-based network (LAN/WAN/Internet). 2. it is possible for a control room at United Kindom to view cameras at USA or at China.
